Do they taste bad?
We use a variety of herbal delivery systems to allow for maximum customization. Most of our herbs are available as tablets or capsules so no bad taste. Sometimes, a formula is only available as a liquid or powder, and those may have a strong flavor. We’ll ONLY give you something nasty tasting if it is the ONLY option available for optimal results.
How often do I need to take them?
We know it’s almost impossible to remember that lunch time dose of anything, so we nearly always set up your herbs to be taken twice per day. Morning and evening is a typical schedule, either with breakfast and dinner or when you brush your teeth so it’s easy to remember.
Will I have to swallow a bunch of pills?
Herbs are medical foods and sometimes require higher doses than with the typical vitamins or pharmaceutical drugs. Most formulas are taken three pills at a time, and many are available as easy to swallow capsules.
Do I have to take them forever?
Unlike many medications, herbs gently guide your body back into balance. Once you’ve stabilized at your improved level of wellness, you can safely discontinue the herbs with no ill effects. Many of our patients choose to continue taking them which is perfectly safe should you choose to do so.
How do you know which herbs I need?
We select herbs for you only after a careful and detailed history. You get exactly what you need – nothing more, nothing less.
How do I know it’s safe?
Herbal medicine has been practiced for centuries, and nearly every culture has its own herbal traditions. We source our herbs from reputable companies who batch test for correct species and for contamination, ensuring a pure and effective product. If we wouldn’t give it to our family, we won’t give it you!
Will herbs interact with my medications?
Our experience is that herb/drug interactions are extremely rare and in many cases patients are able to reduce their medications once they are on the right herbal combination. We are extremely skilled at knowing when we need to exercise caution with your herbal plan in relation to medications you might be taking.
